A Beeswaxed "Bee-Themed" ATC Exchange

This is the result of the recent beeswaxed "bee-themed" ATC exchange that I participated in.  Lots of bee goodness!  The scan is not brilliant - the ATCs were sliding around a lot on the scanner!  All of the other participants were American and the wonderful Kimberley Hopkins was the organiser.

Clockwise from top left, my ATC, then ones by Heidi Elmendorf, Darlene Hagopian, Kimberley Hopkins, Connie Fendley & Joyce Rainwalker.

And an update on my mixed media birds - my first prototype (experiment?) with a gesso-ed brown paper front and a quilted back looks OK but a bit too plain for my liking.  I think I am going to stamp the paper first on the next one and see if that makes it more interesting looking.

Hi Debs - I've been catching up with you - running fast! All those gorgeous hearts, and I love all the ATCs - what an amazing collection you have made on this post.

Lovely bees! Can't wait to see what you're doing with the birds :) It's spring here, so birds and bees are the subject du jour.
